Conns Commences Strategic Review

Conns Inc. (NasdaqGS:CONN) announced that its Board of Directors authorized management to explore a full range of strategic alternatives for the Company to enhance value for stockholders, including, but not limited to, a sale of Conns Inc., separating its retail and credit businesses or slowing store openings and returning capital to investors. In connection with authorizing the strategic review of alternatives, Conns Inc.'s Board of Directors also has adopted a stockholder rights plan and declared a dividend of one right on each outstanding share of Conns Inc.'s common stock. The Rights Plan will expire on October 5, 2015 and is intended to enable management and the Board of Directors to explore strategic alternatives while reducing the likelihood that any person or group would gain control of Conns Inc.'s through open market accumulation or otherwise without appropriately compensating all of Conns Inc.'s stockholders. Conns Inc. has engaged BofA Merrill Lynch as financial advisor and Kevin Lewis, Jeff Floyd, Kai Haakon Liekefett, Gabe Nwuli, Leonard Wood, Atma Kabad, Justin Moore and David D’Alessandro of Vinson & Elkins LLP as legal counsel to assist in the process.
